    I Love My City

    Amazing the smell of the sea coming through my window this night- fresh- simple breeze that replace all thought with salty dreams.

    The Smell

    The Sea does not smell. It is the smell of the coast... But how can I tell, if sensing the moist no-smell of the sea is not a smell. However, I love it, too.

    Alive

    My family goes to the ocean atleast once a year, and as soon as I smell that air, my worries melt away.  I feel so clean, so refreshed, so...Happy.  I lived with my sister a few years back In Eureka, and I absolutely loved it there.  It's so much batter than living...

    Salt Water

    I love how the scent fills the breeze that comes from the sea.  How I know that somehow it will give me this wonderful ability to sleep deeply that night and how it will arouse my hunger.

    It Was a Part of My Life

    I was born and grew up in a few different tropical islands in Southeast Asia. It was always hot and humid all year round. One of the houses that I lived in back then was less than a quarter mile away from the sea. On some very hot days, I would take my bike with a...

    The Ocean

    I live right near the ocean and I just love the way it smells. When I'm away from home I realize how much I miss it and how important it is to my everyday life. That and I miss the sound of the buoy that I can hear when I'm in my room at home.

    Coast, Scotland

    We lived by the sea in Crail for a while and I loved the smell of the sea and the sea weed, the taste of salt in the air, crashing of waves, mewing of gulls. So much constant action yet peace!
